Secrets in Lace Review: The Bettie Shape Collection

A Little Intro

I’ve been meaning to review Secrets in Lace for a long time now but I hadn’t purchased any of their items until I stopped in the US on vacation (I’m American, but live abroad and this was before they shipped to Europe via the Secrets in Lace euro shop.) Anyway, I was on the lookout for nude body shapers but with a twist. The Bettie Page shapewear collection – nude with pink stitching – was my choice. At the time the collection launched, it also came in black with fuschia trim. What’s left of the Bettie Page shapewear collection is on deep discount (up to 75% off!) at Secrets in Lace.

Secrets in Lace product info:

We designed the long line strapless bra to maximize cleavage while also providing extra lift and support. For more options we have included removable straps. The colors are classic Bettie – Beige or Black with Fuschia trim – ideal beneath any ensemble!

First Impressions

I absolutely adored the strapless bra and girdle direct out of the package! The pink stitch was adorable and I immediately thought to buy the black colorway (but it was sold out in my size, to my disappointment.) The material is not as see through as you’d think even though it’s made of mostly nylon. The quality of this lingerie is absolutely top-notch and felt nice and slinky in my hand and when I put it on. It’s not stifling and very breathable (especially the bra because the cups are lined in cotton!)

Sizing & Fit

I forgot the bra was a strapless bra until I put it on and the straps didn’t want to stay put. They felt a bit flimsy until I secured them properly. I must say that I don’t usually wear this bra with the straps as they feel like they’re not supposed to be there and were sort of added on at the last minute (all straps on strapless bras feel that way to me). The lined cups felt lovely on and were cut lower than a full cup, but a tiny bit more than a demi cup. Unfortunately, I had to adjust the bottom of the longline bra frequently as it had a tendency to ride up a bit as I moved around (a problem with longline bras – depending on the material used.) All in all, I think this strapless bra does it’s job in support – especially if you’re a bigger cup size like me. This bra gives serious cleavage by the way.

I completely forgot it was shapewear that I’d ordered until I put on the girdle! I felt the compression immediately but it wasn’t too terrible. I did have to get used to the many hooks and eyes on the back (I didn’t have to do them up or anything, I just slipped on the girdle, but I’m not used to feeling them back there as this was my first garter belt with more than a couple of hooks and eyes – I normally buy the pull on variety.)

The silhouette was very nice and I felt like I was wearing an all in one corselette but since I bought separates, I can enjoy wearing both pieces separately, like when I need to wear a strapless bra but not a garter belt.

I ordered my usual size and felt it was a bit too snug until I remembered that it’s a strapless bra (they usually feel that way, in order to keep everything in place) and remembered it’s shapewear, not a cute matching bra and girdle set that’s just supposed to look pretty. No, this was functional and pretty. After breaking in the set after a couple wears, they now feel more comfortable.

Review Summary

My point in writing this review (as the collection is not a new one) is to say that Secrets in Lace make quality lingerie! I wouldn’t hesitate in ordering from them. My order arrived exactly when they said it would and the sales they have are pretty amazing. I would also like to note that some pieces (usually the hosiery and panties) do pop up on Ebay while a set of lingerie is a bit more rare, it does happen and you should snatch it up if you get the chance!
